    Al-Qaida anger at Jazeera on Laden tape
    By MAGGIE MICHAEL, Associated Press Writer
    9 minutes ago

    CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Qaida sympathizers have unleashed a torrent of anger against Al-Jazeera television, accusing it of misrepresenting Osama bin Laden's latest audiotape by airing excerpts in which he criticizes mistakes by insurgents in Iraq.

    You know Al-Jaz is really begining to be my news provider of choice. It is usually better ballanced than Aunty and knocks CNN and Fox into a cocked hat. I must take up a subscription.

                You would have to be very hungry or very confused to pull that one off.

                Maybe his finger fell into some BBQ sauce and through natural instinct desided to take a bite?

                  Once you get past al Jazeera's slant, it ain't a half bad news source. Since they're pretty up-front about their slant, one can move on to other things. From time to time they post some totally decent pieces of journalism. I wish that the vaunted New York Times was as up-front about their slant.

                  For a real trashy Middle East news source, try al Arabiya. They make Rupert Murdoch look reasonable.

                    I don't know much about Al Jazeera, but what you say makes some sense. I have always said that I admired most European news agencies for being open about their political slant, whereas American news organizations all pretend to be objective when they have their biases too.

                    Better to have the intellectual honesty and then read multiple sources and draw your own conclusions than to read one source and assume it is the "be all and end all" because it is "objective". There is no such thing.

                    Of course some people want to be pandered to by getting their information only from those sources who have the same bias as they do. That is fine and understandable, but don't pretend that is objective.

                      Rupert Murdoch is reasonable, just look at the FOX news channel.

                              Yes, it is the unclean hand the hand Arab wipes thier arses with. What of it? It is common to most cultures where bog roll and running water are luxuries.
